Comparison of Global Solvers

Within the COCONUT project, we performed extensive tests of the following solvers for global constrained optimization and constraint satisfaction problems:
BARON, GlobSol, ICOS, LGO, LINGO, OQNLP, Premium Solver, MINOS, and COCOS (the solver in the alpha test version of the COCONUT environment) for various sublibraries of the COCONUT benchmark. For an overview over the most recent test results see Details for the new comparison will be available very soon.

Of interest for heuristics for bound-constrained optimization is also the recent report

with comparisons of the three heuristic global optimization programs MCS, Global, PGSL, using black box function evaluation only.
